    Radio Specials The Computer History Museum Presents: 'Machines of Loving Grace' Author John Markoff As robots are increasingly integrated into modern society -- on the battlefield and the road, in business, education and health -- those who design the machines have a stark choice to make. They can design systems to enhance the quality of human work and life, or they can design systems that replace humans entirely. Both approaches will reshape the modern world. In "Machines of Loving Grace: The Quest for Common Ground Between Humans and Robots," Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter John Markoff explores this issue and searches for an answer. Will these robots help us? Or will they replace us? Markoff goes deep inside the science fiction worlds of "Battlestar Galactica," "Terminator" and "The Jetsons," which are fast becoming a reality, and talks to the insiders who are shaping the future. Computer History Museum CEO John Hollar will moderate a captivating conversation with Markoff on the evolution of our relationship with robots and the profound changes the future might hold.
